"Hello my name. Is matt brewer. Welcome to sifi talk. Good omens based on a novel by neil gaiman and cherry prejud- looks at good and evil in a funny unconventional way. As an angel and a demon make an alliance in order to keep things status quo and to save existence from an upcoming armageddon to actors were turned loose and their chemistry comes through and messrs david tennant and michael sheen. Well known each other since the time they bulletin angel wants team will start at his angels. One one of them fail yup or saunter vaguely downwards. I yeah and they so they both being sent by the respective head offices to work in the same field And over time they have come to an agreement and then agreement is turned to a sort of friendship and that friendship. Maybe it's something even more deep but that they can't really talk about i guess and then and they've fallen in love with being on earth and what it is to be human. You know. I think the fact that they neither of them off as allowed them to kind of enjoy. What's being human means. And they sort of not the edges off each other and they've become more like each other as well and now they don't want it to end and there's this terrible plan to going to an end and so they have to do what they can to stop it and about that. Read through through are always awful. Because they're like i e skill. You're you're meeting lots of people. The first time. Hundreds of hundreds of people. You never get screens have executive producers. I'm so ensue from the bbc. And i'm super mamas. And you're going i i mean this is all the blah because i'm terrified anyway going to have to read words load for the first time i'm convinced someone's going to me on the shoulder. This was great but you know they are. You know to with all of that and you're sort of trying to trying to make that you're happy to be there and thrilled and all you want to do is color into a fetal position under the table Sue you dealing with a lot but then you also get to play the first time and and you want to give your best because you want people to think we deserve to be here and you want to try and start making those connections and and sometimes that happens and sometimes it doesn't i think We start reading. The we've got lost things together. I was going through the strip and the characters began to bubble and comes life. Come into focus in a way that can never be when you're sitting in your in your bedroom and i'm reading the novel and trying to imagine what it might look like when you pair of boots on and if you do that with your hair a little i talked to and and it was. I think it became a very important moment for establishing war. We're going to be informed. I mean those reach on thing because you get some actors who just sort of mumble the way through it. you don't really commit to it because they don't wanna really vulnerable is the first time the character sort of starts to make itself hug because unless you've been home practicing in front of the mirror which is then you know it's the first time you kind of let the character stop to try and with and with this it was. It's so much about what their relationship is like so he was first attempt to start to see what that is. She was a very of all the returns on evidence for anything. This was the most important one in terms of the process was in a way we because we wouldn't get much john's towards we'd be filming. Yeah so it was the first time on. Possibly the only time that we got a i go going oud. Who write your or your your color. And this color. And i know when i do this. That seems to work off you quite well and it really did feel like adjusting to each. Nfl like a dance. like going. all right this is how we move together and this is how this bit of my body works when it's going into your body but all felt quite like it was going to walk. Sometimes you like old. yeah. I can't know i thought i was going to be able to do a little heff. But all that felt positive into the forward forward motion to borrow a mac and constricting. And i i not necessarily able to say what they were but if felt like we were discovering things a lot yes through read through that then informed yesterday got very instinct at nebulous. It's hard to pin down. It did feel like it was. It was a positive evolution. Yeah yeah we traveled through the ages with these characters as mentioned before. Because he's done. Most of those are sort of one. Does seem to seem in sixty soho. There's a scene in the ancient room and of course because of the way filming schedule walk. She visit them intermittently over. The sort of five always looked forward to do one of those. Yeah exactly they were always great fun to do. It's a brilliant sequence brilliantly written and of course each one was was a usa opened his own right and we didn't stint on this production. We went to shakespeare's globe. We took it over three hours and and filled it well with straw supporting artists. And you know that was one of the joys of it being production that had been a half behind that all these worlds were beautifully created and it did feel like the real dressing up box game. Yes i don't get to change. Like i decided that mike is there fell as just sort of stayed looking pretty much to say like if you find a nice waistcoats in the victorian era he just keeps it like. That's the thing and so when we got to do they're going through history stuff. I got to really jess. Which was i love everyone. Because the makeup wardrobe go to. I think every excited ancient room. Today we'd see each other out tagging like this and on their interesting relationship. It's it's almost deeper than a friendship though. Because they've known each other for such a long time they meet each other through all of history there almost like a marriage on mean they are to hobbs of the same being by the end of the story. They didn't know each other so well and they have such a they know what each other lights and ultimately they never want to really hurt each other but they bicker a lot. You know and they'll fight. But i think underneath there's a real respect for each other it seems like a real sensitivity to each other but with the law of eye ruling and a low of incredulous. Looks enjoying what your role is the other one. You know like a lot of that is i. Get to be the sort of old for goodness sake that there's a real as far as humor. I'm going to recognize well. Neal says he's favorite in the whole series. Is the one bit that we made up together. I won't say that is no. I guess you just told us it did happen lulls but it but there were moments. I guess that got one moment which has made it into the final but he told the characters of there during the page of the novel and they were definitely there on the page of the script. So i mean just the basic premise all about relationship and the context is in is funny and enjoyable to it's sort of baked into them and kneels. Writing is so great that it's that it's either but also come up with anything better known but i think we are. I think one of the things that is similar of as actors. I think that say tell is is that we are quite without changing. The words were quite improvisational actors in that we can. We can play around with scenes and mine's without necessarily changing the dial interesting. Yeah bike i would be very one of the most enjoyable things about activities being surprised by the choices that he's made for things all that's really enjoyable choice. I would never have thought of that. And that. and that's like improvising in a way is like oscar. But you're not sticking with the lines you just bringing a whole lot of creativity to what you do. And that's what so enjoyable to act with him than to actually ever. Yes been surprised by something. Michael can all go to this. I was felt like an improvement. Volvo is sometimes the experience that.

Is matt brewer and welcome to sci-fi talk good omens on a novel by neil gaiman and cherry pritchett good and evil in a funny unconventional way as an angel and a demon make an alliance in order to keep things status quo and to save existence from an upcoming armageddon. Jon hamm is the angel. Gabriel and miranda. Richardson plays madame tracy. And they join us. I at the roundtable human berry. Kind helpful madam tracy. Who's making a buck. In the only way she knows how which is by being a part time. Polite word cortisone and media. Yeah both wichita helping mostly mankind. It seems this road womankind and Living in very eccentric lodgings and just getting on with life and then finds that she really does have a have a talent because she is chosen as the channel Is there a failed to trying to again on again. This is only sponsoring and yeah so it's huge fun visit kind of the centerpiece same to her character which involves a sales where zero fell comes through and then a journey is set in motion. Getting off on a moped with mike mccain on the back and say the world. my guy the archangel. Gabriel is that taken It's not in the book but he. He's in some books in certain book. But he's not in this book Although is mentioned in the book So neil Decided to sort of flesh them out and give him a an arc of some sort and Arguing and so he is. He is god's hand man basically and as such she is your files boss and as that she is tasked with making sure their fail does his job bring about armageddon And the the thought was that. He's that boss that we've all had in some capacity you just hate because he is so confident and assured and certain his way is the right way and yet he's completely wrong who and unin poorly informed and misinformed Agreement like most of us think of our bosses You have to do what they say. But it's they're so and you wish so. There's there's a lot of a lot of joy in playing kind of handsome misinformed idiots done on several occasions as saying it's all to the point of telling this incredibly detailed and layered story that is has been rendered with such great care by the by the team behind behind good omens and so it was a real pleasure to get to be asked to play in that playground. Here's john hamm's reaction to the first script. I couldn't believe there were making. I read the book back in the ninety s. When i was a kid and i thought the same way i thought about american gods. This would be such a cool movie that they will never make because it's impossible due and now in the world we live where you can make a six hour. Movie and limited series. You can do that and you know. It's it's where we how we have grown as storytellers and the and the tools at our disposal at this point and and the tools are getting it in front of people it doesn't have to be didn't have to be one four networks didn't have to be one of five offerings in theater. It can cinema. It can be something else i could. Is it. tv now. We call amazon prime tv. Or do we call it. What do we call it. I don't know like it's it's entertainment. It's content at something. And i'm just. I'm pleases all hell to be able to do it. So i read the smith. I was like this is exactly. This is exactly wanted to read the second one third of the fourth one where we see how they did it. I mean i've always really dealt with Short form and i love it on. It also attracts great talent. And and it seems counter intuitive. Because you think the people would want to go on longer and there is a case for that You knew this case for everything. It's just it's not. It's not mine. Allman i do. I've never sustained through You know five years of some say So this this just feels like it feels like home. Really you know with With the the budget and talents for a movie thought its structure stretched out over a lovely nice bouncy period of time and you get to grips with it. Yeah i i've i've worked in pretty much. Every television capacity from network television to cable television. the basic cable television premium cable television. What have you The the difference you know when we started madman. Oh what's it like working for. Amc because it's so free to do all this creative stuff like that different from hbo. Is that different from the networks. Are now i think so. I think the necessity to appeal to incredibly wide. Swath of the marketplace is certainly lessened. At certain places and i think it's non existent at amazon. I think they whatever their metrics they use. Then villain the black netflix's who or what have you. I think that only they know them. So it's it's a hit that they say it's hit and and that's that's such a great place to be for us because we know if we like it and we know if we wanna do it anymore. And that's that's awesome. You're not dependent on some nebulous third party that says like deemed ju The gives you the ability to go to go on further I've always been a fan of the of the of the british way of doing things television wise because the all of their shows with exception of eastenders shot like come to the only big twelve fawlty towers you know blackout. Or they may four seasons of six episodes. Ej and they're great and then three bucks and you want to keep and then you get to go do something else. Because if you're an actor like the idea of doing the same thing over and over again six particularly weird to do if you're not gonna get into like making.

"Designer in film. Hello. my name. Is matt brewer and welcome to sci-fi talk. Hi welcome into sifi talk and we have today after. Douglas tait is going to be appearing in the new hell boy. Movie a reboot of guillermo del toro classic douglas. Thank you tony I'm happy to be here. Is your much you can tell us about your character. And how boy well Yeah exactly well. The phone comes out next week april twelve. So it's very exciting The exciting thing about this character for me is that it's it's fully practical and nowadays with the era of visual effects being what it is and the cgi getting better and better. But i'm such a fan of practical. And i feel like practical holds up more than cgi to our. You know every year you new cdi come out. It gets better and better but it doesn't hold up in movies. You know you look back a movie. Five years ago and looks outdated but yet the practical that you see even eighties movies from rick baker and an robbo people like that. I mean it stands out in books gray. This character is so big and it fully animatronic and it was all done practical except for a couple of teams were had been grow and be bigger and that was motion capture and and then the lifting of the mouth had markers around it. Because you couldn't even though the mouth loop was fully been candidate nine to serve. You could live seeing the voice With the mechanics of the mouth of they had to do some. Cgi harps that there you know. It's actually one of the things about your career. I know you've worked on grim and other shows where your face has been covered by makeup as an actor. How do you prepare for going in that. You know you're going to be make that that's a great question and you know every role differs and it's sometimes very challenging because especially on tv where you don't have a lot of times or really work on what you're doing it's kinda like you show up and you're in a makeup and you go with it the preparation so basically I go with the design. And then then i then i go with the script to kind of get a feeling and then also If i have a chance to speak with the director or the special effects person usually is there before me so he has more of a sense of how the character is and getting in the mesa. Obviously that will tell me a lot. it really helps to sit in front of a mirror to kinda so i could she. What's reading and what's not 'cause a lot of times makeup you have to over. Accentuate your expressions. Then they read and then also body takes is a big part of it too so all train with movements and animal movements and things so that my body is ready to go if i need to move or a physician. That's very difficult to hold. So those are kind of things. I do with hell boy in particular. I had some time to really get into character. Because i was..

My name is Matt Brewer and welcome to sci-fi. Talk. Hi. This is Tony Tomato and welcome to sci-fi talking today's guest is Matt Binder who has an interesting novel called the absolve Matthew Welcome I thank you for having me an interesting premise. I I like to start with the main character. Mr Henry he's interesting because he's a physician, a father, a husband, but he's also a serial philanderer. So how does he fit into the story of the absorbed? Well, I guess sort of the impetus for writing this book was a conversation I had with my brother who is an oncologist as well, and one day we were talking about a and automation displacing people the workforce. And he said something along the lines of. You know in the future people, we'll just have to work harder to cultivate a skill set. That will make them indispensable and Konami, the way that I have. And then so I pointed out to him, I said, yeah, you know, I, think probably in a matter of twenty years or so is going to be making much better medical decisions than than than you're capable of and so that was sort of the genesis of. The idea for the book, and then as I was writing the book, the characters in the book Henry is is nothing like my brother at all but I don't know I I've always just much more interested in in characters who have Dubious ethics, I guess it's just I. Don't know I I guess for me as I'm writing this. I'm just trying to entertain myself because I didn't really have any like necessarily grand delusions of a of a wide readership. So I thought it'd be more fun to. Write. Him sort of an ethically challenged person and There was no like outlined that I was working from Os just you know.

"Designer in film. Hello. My name is Matt Brewer and welcome to sci-fi Talk. All right. Hi, it's Tony Tomato Sifi talk and we're GonNa talk about radish originals. It's an APP that's going to be featuring some really cool stories on Sci fi fantasy young adult and the paranormal, and this will be quite a mix of characters. In, regards to race. Ethnicity gender sexual orientation and Socio Economic Status Age, and even physical abilities. So there's close stories we have some of the folks that are involved with that right now and welcome and I know Sue Johnson is on the call and she's actually one of the ones kind of spearheading this SUV. You can comment on how this all came together. Well, sure I am the chief content officer for Radish and. One of the initiatives that I was given when I came aboard last April was that we wanted to create original stories for our radish APP. We currently have hundreds of of writers to publish their work on radish, but we wanted to create in house originals, and so that's where this whole idea started from and coming from my background with daytime writers. That's how I brought. Marlena, common. Cool very cool. I think what appeals to me it's an APP. So made pretty much. It can go anywhere and that would probably mean a phone and also a tablet so you can carry it anywhere and read all these stories. So you're instead of having to lug all these. Books around with you. You got this one thing and I think that's pretty powerful and that's the way the world is as. Was it always a plan to do this as an APP. Yes it was from the beginning One of the things that we pride ourselves on is that we have stories that have we consider it bites sized serialized fiction. So because you can read, it goes on on an APP it's. Something that you can take with you ever and read when you just have a free moment. So you know if you're commuting to work on a subway or you're you're standing behind, you know at starbucks, you can read restore your chapter on Reddish and so it's it's really made for people who are on the go and you know you could sit down and read twenty chapters if you have any time. But if you only have a little bit of time, you can still fill it with some interesting fiction. That's awesome. So let's go through some of the stories and. We have some of the writers with us. Here we have first of all fraternity madam is a writer for that one here. Yes. We're. We're you have bothers them. Yeah. Cool cool. So how did the idea for this one about this was actually Soo's original idea and she had kind of presented it as risky business on a college campus..

"Hello. My name is Matt Brewer and welcome to Sifi talk high. Once again, this year I was on the red carpet talking to actors, directors about their films, the TRIBECA film, festival, it's always a lot of fun great to talk to them there because you get. Get to talk to them one on one in starting this off his Mary. Harron. The Director of American Psycho who took on Charlie Manson. Charlie says, but what was interesting is that the viewpoint is from the women that joined Charlie's. Colt not. Charlie, himself I was joined by rich breeze editor and publisher of film. Buff on mine. This is actually based on a On. Her? Birth couple. Person seems like the later scenes are all based on this. State visited the women in. Prison. And, then there's the liberal judges, the family and. Everybody. was in the Manson family tragedy. Your previous film, I shot Andy Warhol kind of dealt with the intersection of violence and celebrity. What brought you back to kind of that theme again for this. Really. Sixty. Such a fascinating time. This. Cultural Revolution Upheaval. I. was always like a civil war. Culturally. Still. The effects of it now, crystal. I keep returning to. The way ordinary. Leave such. As. Ours cussing by colleagues to about how. Odd Smuggle road suddenly getting taken by these. Very intensive strange. On that team, we actually get to see Charlie's manipulation of the people that come in and it seems like they're all broke into. So I kind of gave him pass into them. Some. In. Prison. Manson. Early exploiting vulnerabilities and homing in on women. Insecurity and just like getting caught in Maryland. To you said you nearly anybody everybody in the Manson family wrote their own book. Did. You encourage the actors to do their own research based on that or did you want him to just go with what's in the? Store I. Think you'd always encourage people to do dive. And immersed himself old. Kind of see the story through Mary Ann's characters is what was like the casting process for? I mean, usually spend years casting. Always see hundreds and hundreds of people. Every Person, comes in. And sometimes, it's number one, hundred and fifty. Plays Leslie, of Audition Chris Guy on this like blurry skype stream. Silicon. I could. Think of anybody else at the bar. It looks like you would shoot on spun rancher results out. Here that was really did shoot California. Germany match. Smith as Charlie Manson will. CAST. Of. New. By. The girls just look stupid. Why would they follow somebody? Charismatic making waves, the art of cinematic sound is a documentary that showcases those challenges, men and women that create sound for film. It could be any kind of sound effect you here. It's usually created for that film. Here is director Midge costume. Glad that you do their film on an area that's really overlooked so. Sounds like a labor of love. How did this all come together as well? It's like Hollywood, sound editor for many years. But I'm kind of a born again one because I started out in the picture I was film school. I didn't understand I. thought sound was all technical and then it came out and I realized. you can do so much with like reflecting character get motion. Just even like an ambiance can change. Somebody feels about place or person, and also like what is her dog sound like? What is your house? Oh, like what is outside of their house down? So many things to do. So I became so passionate about town, and then they started to Then I was asked by I, love is teaching and I went back to. To teaching and at because, I really wanted to give them a leg up the students. So they wouldn't be in the dark like I was feeling like, oh, sounds so scary. I would panic attacks. So so great that you know to have this, and now we have it in the film form and that people can see it and then Tribeca took it took it on and then, and then we just found out. We're GONNA, can. Show. What was the process like to get some of these legends like Mr Emerge? Want it was well, I know I knew Gary, I know because I was in the industry had new people. Also, you know why the sound and they respect them so much. Did the film and that's how I got most of the big people I got through. To the sound people knew how you know it's like. By heart, you know because they really care about town and they did it for their sound. Congratulations. Something else has a romantic monster film. I spoke to David lossing junior joined by Aaron Moorehead and Justin Benson of rustic films who produced the project I know you from. Google. Dave. That's right. That's rain. Every once in a while but. It's rarely poignant. You probably know him as well. Yeah. Sure. How you doing how I? I actually put in a good word for you guys talk. With dust I interviewed the CEO. said. Hey. These guys. That's so funny. You say that we've been talking to these guys. Office still. Coaching. session. High. Quality Coke. Zero cold. So, talk about this one. What kind of lead you position we've made three movies as directors and producers, and he's made sex and. There was this one in script that we were reading it thinking man, if you are directing us, we kind of know how to get this made. For for anybody that likes the battery, this is the battery. With people that like with actual financing behind it like with actual like. And Resources. They're insane storytellers and this is the. Battery all like. What they did for such, a small budget is phenomenal. and. It was really nice to get to like. Expand on that like, Hey, here's some resources. Hey, here's a nice camera. Hey, here's some really talented actors. Like. And their script in their storytelling is. Now does this take place in the same universe as the endless because the other films have kind of all? Know helping some friends. No. Cheesy to say, it's a monster movie. But with you guys I, knew you had a little more to. It. It's not a Muslim. It's a love story. So, this movie is a love story at its core. That has a monster in it, but it is it is through and through. A love story and a man that's in love with a woman, and also we we had. No. We had literally almost snow. Created input in the script itself and what I what I mean also is that like Jeremiah friends, he sent us a script said egging some feedback. I read the script and it made me cry and I never had a script. Made me cry before and I was like this is a very special. Various. Special thing. It does not need if it's already making us cry. It does not need us. Needed a ring to be put on. A good metaphor. Keep going. He, just we just we know we can get them.

So it was kind of a chance to merge the two was faced with a difficult decision, my wife and I whether or not to leave Los Angeles and move to the East Coast. and this was kind of a chance to put that therapy on the page, a little bit and also feature an evil twin parallel universe. So I thought it was a win win. Definitely. Hard of the appeal is. If, you could meet yourself from a different universe. What would they be like? What choices did they make? Their lives at are different from yours and I think that's part of the appeal, but this guy. He wants to replace Todd in our universe, and I sent him to his. Yeah. That's right and you know I. Always Suspected If I. IF I met myself, it might not go so well. I didn't think we'd enjoy each other's company very much so this is kind of a way to play with that idea but also to explore you know what would happen if you met yourself. But they had gone through a transforming event or or situation, and how those those two timelines diverge, and make you into two different people. I mean alternate. Staple of sci-fi. They were a book I. Remember Reading The guns of the South essentially. What if Hailey and Invaded during the civil war, and somehow we went back in time and use modern technology and fringed surely did. The TV series certainly did a lot on alternate history so it's spin us a staple in even star trek did in a an alternate history, and with the Mirror universe created a whole world. which you're still doing things about so. Yeah, it's a very Very staple of science fiction and head offers a lot of intriguing questions about about who we are and. What the other universe could be. Did you also want to kind of make a commentary on us a little bit? Yeah I mean it it like you said it goes. It goes all the way back to the star trek original series probably even before then but yeah, the parallel universe twin can get quite trophy So what we did was we tried to take some of those tropes, and and build on them or make fun of them a little bit but mainly you'd classify this film as as light, sci-fi There's not A. Is mainly focused on the characters, and their relationships with just a little bit of sci-fi twist to underscore. The approach you're taking his to kind of make it sort of comedy and to look at it, the fun side of it, the situations that result as a result of the new todd..

"Hello, my name is Matt Brewer and welcome to sci-fi Talk Hi. This is Tony Tomato and today. We look at it. Film called the Mandala effect, and it's really two different conversations I. WE'RE GONNA. Start off with the film's director and Co Writer, and that is David Guy Levy and one of its stars the. The mandel effect is a very interesting film. It depending on your beliefs, it really questions reality. If you're Philip K Dick Fan like I am then. It's always good to question reality once in a while, and that's what this film does. Is this a parallel universe that we're going to be unveiled before our is, or is it a large simulation by a powerful computer? The Matrix questions at this film asks. And dives deep into it, but yet it also revolves around the family. As, Toyota and with me today interesting, the Co writer director of a film, David Levy, it's called the Mandela. And, also one of the stars who plays very troubled Brandon Charlie huff Amer welcome gentlemen to the podcast. Thank you for having thanks Tony? David. How did this had had inside the company? I mean this to me. Kind of kind of goes into the Philip. K Dick kind of territory Oh. Yeah, K, Dick is up. Someone I definitely look up to for sure. You know like I think the idea first presented itself at a moment in my life where I was really interested in simulation I pops prothesis and the idea that we might all be live in simulated reality, I've been reading about different people's beliefs and philosophies on the subject, and then I was introduced to the Mandela of. The phenomenon of many people remembering something different than the way it was on a large scale, and then finding a connection between the two is very exciting for me, and then then also going through some personal trauma in my life I started in question. What was really wasn't dot well. This is all kindling or the idea. That became this movie. Happy you approach brandon. Did you and chance to kind of talk about how do? You? Know how to cut create this character. Well, the interesting thing was you know we did it with Charlie? 'cause we actually knew we wanted him..

"Hi. I'm Brad Dorothy. My name is calling salmon on. And I think. This is Katie sack off Greg Grunberg findings Gareth Edwards. My name is Neville concept designer in film. Hello, my name is Matt Brewer and welcome to Sifi Talk Hi. This is the first of a special Batman at eighty double header, and this is on the movie. Hush now available. We start off with Maury Sterling. WHO VOICES? Thomas, Elliott and also hush. New I was going in for Thomas Elliott. Playing hush was kind of a surprise. So there was a very quick catch up to who is this character? Who is this guy and I knew actually very little. What's amazing about working with this creative team as? Lot. More than a lot to their specific about kind of what they are asking for in the world you're in. Voicing Hush had its challenges I think any character you play. You don't WanNa over your own oversell. The characters especially with bad villains. There's so many pitfalls and traps only into wanting to sound. again with really good writing I think if you trust the writing, it will tell you what to do. I'M GONNA have to admit. It's just a lot of. Fun! Sue Getting in there and starting to find the laugh of hush was. Probably sick and twisted, but it was really fed of what he enjoyed about voicing hush. It's interesting on my own spin. I felt like I was really catching up to speeds I. Don't know how much I was thinking about. Miami's being I was mostly really trying to. Listen to them and what they were asking for, and make sure I was giving what they wanted. It's fun to play a character. Is that our folding, and the more I didn't search on finding out sort of his upbringing what he taught himself about strategy and all that. It's interesting to play somebody who actually is one step ahead in the chess match? Even, though not its holder, the different twists coming, but it you know. School. De. He tells me. Anyway I know what? I mean I. Think it probably most based terms. It's just a mess with that man and Batmans world as much as he possibly can. It was really interesting when I did go back and. It was really interesting. Go back and start learning about his childhood and sort of mealy early stages of his developing hatred against the wings and and and. How that that Ben Culminates with a couple lines in there too that he says about how he just really wants to destroy Batmans world, everyone he cares about and what's cool in this one is I think we see a lot more Batmans caring for certain people in his world. Raises the stakes in terms `push trying to mess up. School this is how he differed vocally from Thomas, Elliott and hush the fun of voiceover. You get to do that even the same project to do a couple of different things, which is just not. Cool. I'm trying to remember I feel like I came into Elliott and then getty hush. A total surprise was sort of like. We're giving you Tom Sally. That civil pool and I feel like they. Can't remember exactly, but I think they came back to me, and said Oh and by the way we're also I mean I knew there was sort of the, but I didn't know if was actually GonNa go that way. I could have that memory wrong now. So, be careful unquote now. But It's just fun I mean the the joy of getting to do this helps in differentiating is it's a fun challenge to be able to do the two different? The direction I really tried to Thomas is just genuinely play him like an ice skating. The more you go, Nice. The more you've believable Nice Guy. Then not only not sort of tipping the cards from his past, but then you're not tipping the hush reveal. Neider. Now which one did he have more fun playing? Make. Sure everything's a challenge I mean it's always again. I think in China. Not Overplay certain characteristics in character you don't want. To come across as Too ingratiating. You're too nice because annual trust. so that was that its challenge beginning to play? Super Super. Death and Seventy, To Out. Here Tennis Day on. Tomorrow. I rely a lot, and I guess I rely a lot on the creatives to they. They guide you and you always make the states you know. A lot of obviously would ends up on. The film is is Jason was talking earlier. Part of our job is to give options you know. Let me give you. Three different takes of the same line one because you don't really know, you're not in the same room, the other actor. So you don't know how are so they as much as you can give them the play with his good and a lot of those takes are often bad, so that just happens you know and then, but I think that ends. You know and you start to find. Out about but I think it's fun and voiceover. Somebody that feels like a code that you're trying to craft, and you're trying to find that perfect little thing once you get into the pocket. I think then you then you okay now I were knowing no, my own I can push more here and it makes more sense. Did he alter his voice? We didn't yeah we didn't get any like. I've done things for you sort of a better obame read. But with the bandages, no, we kind of. Just kept the says. He's coming. During If feels really cool. I mean I. It's fun to be a comic con in a way, though I feel like I feel such a responsibility to fans and people who know the legacy of. Any of this stuff. I grew up. My Dad's a smart dude and he I grew up around Greek mythology, and and and I mean I used to go to. I remember going to school. When I was about six dressed in a Batman outfit and getting laughed out of school. You know because those days it was tight. You know basically tights on underpants over the deel the thing. so I think as a kid I've always been into it. I wouldn't call myself a superfan knowing it all. It doesn't matter it still so much like these are are myths lake these are on Greek mythology, and in its absolute honored to be involved in something like this and then bike, and it's eightieth. You know it's it's. It's really cool. It's really cool. No it! It hit me like. Right the way they changed the way characters return their shifted slightly. It's just you know. was like yeah, it's total sense and the writing often. Really good I think people dismissing. No heavy duty stuff to now so it's cool. I'm voicing and playing villains. My mom is eternally frustrated. Keep playing bad guys. You're nice boy mill valley. California. What's the deal? Yeah I, seem to be. It's funny how you find your niche. Villains or fun. Those are fun. It's also. Hats off the Jason is like playing that straight. Batman thing is not easy. I think that's a real skill of art, so but yeah I guess. Bruce Tom Mitchell. You may remember from Kyle X Y as Stephen trigger the father in this series Voices Commissioner, Gordon in Hush Gordon is cool because he grew up in the mid west. There's a lot of things about Jim Gordon that are very mid. West he's STOIC. He cares about PVC deeply carrying the people of city. That's his whole thing. He'll do anything and everything possible to protect them to say that he's got a heart of gold, and he's frustrated out of his mind. I said earlier. Thing today I feel like I. Don't under I'm trying to still trying to figure out how this guy has still has his job. Nothing is ever going right and got them. It's always out of control any challenges on voicing Gordon I just. As.

"Hello. My Name. Is Matt Brewer and welcome to sci-fi talk? Hi Welcome once again. This is Tony till I don't end today. We're talking about a very interesting film called on you and today I have the writers the CO writers and the Co Directors as well in Jacob. Akira Okada and Carol Ann Taylor. Carole Anna Taylor. Excuse me welcome both of you. Thank you for having US thank you. You're very welcome. Kind of talk to me about how. This idea came to be hobbies. Both of you back in Twenty Fourteen Jacob and I were finishing up the added on another project called painting the way to the moon. And that's the documentary that explores A scientific discovery from from the perspective of scientists. And but we found really fascinating about this project was Kinda how accidental and Messy. And how interesting the moment of discovery could be so. We were thinking a lot about that. Started riding on. Yeah tastic and the subject matter was that did that. Come from you. Both kind of had in front of your mind there. You know one of the things that we were playing around with we Carolina and I like to play. What if games so I think I would? If will the first question I think I asked Carolina was you know how do we define Species you know at what point What point is this a separate species from that Obviously it's really easy when you're you know looking at two extremely different you know organisms But it gets a little Blurry you have neanderthals humans. Which when I was growing up were considered when I was a kid there. Were you know they were not considered humans? And then now they are and now we know that they interbred with twenty one With each other and you know we have their DNA so that was I think one of the first questions that we were playing with two years ago and it just sort of developed into well. What if OK well? How does one define a species and you know can one definition is procreation right? So so then we wondered what would happen if we had other species of human living among us today and you know they were distinct Group you know hiding in plain sight and how would they develop a culture around the fact that they can only procreate with one another and how interesting that culture would would be and you know with DNA testing and so on and so forth? You know technologies It became clear that these people would be discovered in what a big discovery that would be for modern science. So it's just kind of grew from that one colonel and so did the screenplay come together fairly easy Carolina. The first draft did. I'm so living MARCO AND SEYMOUR. We're basically invented the same day that we had that what if conversation restart later in the day we were walking and talking where we get some of our best ideas and that's when we came up with the idea of this Young man here would kind of abandoned his culture in search of something more and falls in love with a woman who's not at the same culture same species and then they get entangled with geneticist to help some try to figure out what's going on so that colonel. The idea came together quite quickly and kind of laid out the story and gotTA draft within a month. There's been a couple of months But from there it was really a a process of signing the best way to tell the story and Hard to go with it and the an initial that we did. Were always in this realm of discovering another species humans living among us and we got to point using our observation of enclave cultures. My research with immigration My teaching when I teach introduction anthropology we cover like the entirety of human existence including evolution. So I know a little bit about genetics number of things. We could only go so far. With what renew and things that we lose the ordination Kardashian Modern homeless shaking. Dna like all these little bits were pulling into the story and they can't move richer and richer but we got to a point where we needed a concrete problems or the scientists to be solving for it to feel grounded in real and that's turns to the National Academies of Sciences Science Entertainment Exchange which was like matchmaking service for writers and artists. And they would've been touching this wonderful lad at Harvard Medical School run by Dr King Wu and she and one of her post. Docs at the time. Dr Ruth McColl came onto the project as science advisers and they allowed us to kind of hang out in their lab attend meetings. Go to congressional briefings and get deeper and deeper into the genetic side of it so the more than we start them in the more we learned about how closely were How close geneticists words to unlocking things like gene editing and some of the unintended consequences which netted testing and the power and Wonder these things. But also the risks that sorta creeping more and more into the screenplay so and that sense it was a difficult process but along conference to figure out how much of that took bring in and how best tell the story so that it could resonate with audiences so be true to the science. Well Kudos to you both for for somebody like that. Involved let's talk about the casting. Jacob jumps out at me that I really appreciate it. Because I'm Latino is the diversity of this cast and it was shot here in Queens good old Queens New York and it just reflects the area but also I think reflects a lot of the country is that there's such a diversity to it. It seems that was a conscious effort. When you two were writing and making the film. Oh absolutely so we filmed anya and A lot of really on underrepresented neighborhoods and throughout New York City Washington Heights where Libyan Marco live City island is where Seymour's vote. Vote is that's in the Bronx in Jackson Heights Queens. That's where the Narvarro people are. That's where they reside and Jackson Heights is of course just one of the most diverse cities in the world. I think yeah. I don't know what the actual number of different cultures reside there. But I think it's pretty. It might actually city in the in the world And so the US okay. Yeah so it definitely that right. Yeah you know being a New Yorker myself were both New Yorkers. We just appreciate like this is the reality we live in and it's not. You know it's multiethnic multicultural. And it's not something that we necessarily see and Represented faithfully in the media. Often I would say. There's like an element of Tokenism. You know in some in like stories in TV and film and so we wanted to just tell a story that kind of your what we lived through what we experience and you know the kind of people we interact with our day to day lives and and I think part of it was like okay. We're GONNA like for instance Seymour. The geneticist is black. And it's interesting story choice to have you know your scientists be black because there aren't many black geneticists you know in the field and so that would be dramatic choice for for the story to have this person you know. Be You know Minority and have. Have you know the pressures of being minority? You know upon him and that's something we talked about quite a bit with Dr Wu and her lab. Because you know she was she told us you know about kind of the numbers and so on and so forth and something. We talked about With motel foster who played Seymour Livingston so it just was An interesting and made from a better story I think oh most definitely and Carolina talk about the two leads Gill and Ali. I thought how when when you you written so how do you kind of establish today? Have Chemistry off the Bat. Or if not where even if they did? How do you establish it on screen? That's a fun question Well we were just looking back at some of the behind the scenes but it and there are some shots of alley and Gil just joking around and having fun together the just reaffirmed like how how good of chemistry they had just as humans as well as actors as well as characters would I remember from the casting is we we talked with. Alli am I who plays Libby and fell in love with her over skype interview because she just understood the character so well even better than we had and was able to draw on her own background as a korean-american do kind of get inside of her head. What it might be like for you to to be this particular ethnicity at this particular time. And what her background and in the characters background my her to fall in love with somebody like killed like Marco Pity of Abraham parents. Who's a younger man? He's a little bit standoffish with his culture. Because he's you know her posting protective of their and I waited people. They don't want extra attention. And how how is it that she could come to identify with with him and his relationships his people and And she just got it and I think you'll also just got it from his own personal background. He's I believe it's the Lebanese and Venezuelan descent It's tonight's mix. I wouldn't mind having dinner at his house. Yeah no kidding. And he's also been enclave and community In and this has had experience of moving to the big city so I think they both connected with the roles and we looked at different people for for Marco and I remember thinking about Gil that I could see libby falling for him. There's just a certain amount of Intelligence and Jeff's and amount of thought that seems to be going on behind quite spaces that could see a go getting journalists wanting to know more what was going on and that seemed to be the chemistry and mix that we could see even though we didn't have screens with the two of them together before before casting it just seem very complimentary. That's great I WANNA. We take a short break. We are talking to Carol Anna Taylor and also Jacob Akira Okada who the CO writers and directors interesting film called on. Yeah we'll be right back. I am C. Three. Po Human Citations Name. Hi I'm angel. Kobe and I take one of it. And I. This is Billy Boyd. I plead Pepin and load up the rings and you're listening. Sci-fi talk revolve wrong and prosper back with Jacob Ikaria Akira Okada and also Carol Anna Taylor. And we're discussing their Anna so with this new species.

"Even since the first Pat Labor the I Pat Labor movie is beautiful movie. All hand-drawn absolutely gorgeous Pat Labor too. I mean the the first one is the great story. Second ones okay. Third one you can give or take. I mean I like it just because I'm a sucker for Ami but and franchises. We are running short on short on time. I'm trying to remember any video games that I really WANNA see. I see okay question. And since we're running a time any video games actually think Hollywood would legitimately to turn into a movie because I still think they could do halo. You got the right director of that That's that's the key right there. You gotTa have somebody who can do the visual style and if it was if if I was going to put my money to that it'd be John Woo and do you think you could have master chief as the main character already be supporting character for They've probably turn him into a supporting character so they could tease a sequel. Because my thought actually recently saw this I actually heard an interview with a cane actually from. WWe Awhile ago made me think about this was basically in the interview. He talked about how since you couldn't see his face. He had to have his body make all the emotions and after I heard that I would. You could easily do that. With master chief with having body language tell the story. Yeah Yeah but on the other hand I think it would be better movie. Wise is if he was a supporting character other than the main character. Because I think it would you'd be able to make more stories versus all the Halo Games. Besides the first won't have been very repetitive. Yeah that's true. I think they should do the first one with master chief and then do Kind of like how they actually did the game with a Odious see is well. That would be bad as the first halo novel. Actually the first one it's fall of reach talks about how he was was created on the other hand they did the same movie. Almost verbatim with Kurt Russell and it didn't turn out too so I'm not. I'm not sure if that'll work by the way. If you actually see both the Kurt Russell movie and you read fall of reach their very similar on how their got together together so I said this before. Go with it again. I still want a splinter cell with San Fisher. That'd be fantastic haptic. Since they haven't made another game I totally want a movie. You know chaos theory or something like that so would you be okay with an anime emmy or does it have to be live action because I could totally dig an animate inanimate if they want to do a bunch of his stories like season or two but a movie. I think I'd prefer that to be live action. See I if they did it. Like Marvel Marvel animated movies. I could go forward as long as they've got Michael Ironside to the voice Because I'm a huge mark from Michael Side. He's fantastic another thing. I'm thinking I think if you're going to adopt a video gaming anime I think a great one of you can do the story right. We'd be mega man. They've done the law. Of course it's a lot of it's kids stuff. So would this be kid or more adult oriented or say teenage oriented. That would be able to get it right if it was if it it was me. So there's there's a band of national I really like called the Proto man and I've done kind of lifting the plot from them as their their lead songwriter. Took look the mega man lower and turned it from you. Know aside scroll or you know jumping shoot to a cyberpunk dystopia and rock opera kind of thing. Yeah or doctor. Wyle runs the entire like society and all that doctor light is is due to just live by himself at a big building and he's like working to create create a machine that will liberate humanity from from tyranny. And all that. It's pretty sweet interesting. So it's like sticks. His rock opera but mailman themed. Yeah that's actually kind of cool might might the one issue. I think Hollywood has the creating any sort of video game movie is I think they. They're just not fans so it have to be somebody. Okay who really loved it. I still think Peter Jackson could do like a halo movie is he didn't rely on. CG like the hobbit movies. Because I'm done and with seeing the technicolor rainbow Scorsese the go ahead. I'm trying to think I want to one more game at love to see a movie Actually what I'd love to see as an elder scrolls movie uh thinking about that but that's going to be law of work I don't see here's the thing and to me. There's so much lower at doesn't really have I think you could have in the universe an hinted things and I still think it would be amazing. I don't necessarily one of the story from the video games but I think it'd be easier to do that versus the Dragon Age. Which is one of my another favorite series of mine? But I'd love to see some sort of movie based on elder scrolls in that universe certainly Florida poll from had. There's a ton of games. Oh by the way. WHOEVER BESET BETHESDA MAKE make new video game that's not an online mo.? Please I love elder scrolls but your mo sucks. I mean the thing that I think they should do if they do. Throw in the elder scrolls for actual fans. They have to have my the liar because she was like an every single skyro- every single Eligible game and they have to have low Book that that Noddy Book with Dr Scott Lizard Book Book. So they're going to have. There's a lot of stuff I think you're going to have to throw to the fans. Yeah but I made or yes. Yeah I'd love to see it just because I want something original and at this point I think it would be fun. Always thought it was interesting that they actually did have writing in all the books. It was only only like maybe five or six pages but that was that was an audiobook for a lot of books. That's a shit ton of books as those games. This is true. So Ladies and gentlemen we are are coming up to the end of this amazing our so matt brewer. Any last statements comments or questions Now don't don't be text to each other. So you're basically Abraham linking. Ah Abraham Lincoln at the end of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. Yeah just just you know what cursing a lot more fun. So do you have any plugs.

"matt brewer" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"Extra innings and burns has his hip pocket trying to finish this game off for Zach Davies who in eight, plus two onto out, one to pitch from Corbin burns on its way, little ground ball hit two second. Here has got it flips to arsia. They force out Frazier, and that's the ballgame. Four to the final score. The brewers come to Pittsburgh and take three of four from the pirates, why from annex wealth management studios at Radio City. Here's matt. Brewers. Get the win four to welcome into brewers extra earnings here on WTMJ. We'll get into all the formalities in just a moment. But as we start the program. Let's welcome in brewers. Starting pitcher winning pitcher Zack Davies who pitches into the ninth today. Zach thanks for taking time. How are you? Thank you for having me. I'm doing well doing well, what's this the second time where there's been a day where you as a starter knew you had to give the team innings and you've come through and a big wake? You take. You take me through kind of that mental process for you after an extra long game where the bullpens a little bit down. What your attitude is going into these kind of games? Our mentality pitcher, stay the same we go out there and you wanna pitch long games anyway. But I think the game plan might change a little bit. You try and grow a little bit more to contact with guided the Basit trying trying to keep it early to get that play. And, you know, the defenses incredible behind me and kept me out there for the whole game for eight innings where you had also prized when you were told you were going back out for the ninth. I wanted to count, and I requested it. So it was it was kind of on what's that conversation like one of the counts, and I said, I am I going to have the opportunity and looking at it that you get when I said, yeah, I'm good to go. It said, well, we got cloudy up, so we're, we're good. But I told him on good, even until he thought twice and gave me that chance. And unfortunately I wasn't able to finish it off. But, you know, we, we had Greg guys behind me that shut the door. What's it like for you when you do come out of the game in the ninth inning? And just watching the way that ninth inning plays out from the dugout. You get you get a little bit nervous. But you know you have confidence in the guys behind. You know that the guys coming in and going to make quality bitches and get out of it, but, you know, acute. And you know that was the story of the game when you look back on this start today and you pitch. Well, what would you say was working, especially where well for you? You know full combo for me as been than what I do all year. And, you know, just continue today being able to put it where I wanted to try and get we contact and, and, you know, let my defense the rest Zach take so much time. Congratulations on just a whale of performance today. And we'll see about a Milwaukee, thank you very much. Thank you. That's Davies joining us here on brewers extra innings we welcome you into the program. My name is ma'am. Polly, if you wanna join us, you can do so four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that's four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talk and text line. You can also tweet and if you'd like at map Pauley on air. P. A U L E Y on air. What a performance. Zach Davies great to talk to him here to lead off the program. Eight innings he pitches into the ninth first time in his career that he is pitched into the ninth of a big league game in with his win today. He is now six zero with a two point two ERA. That's, that's pretty special stuff right there from from Zach Davies. Let's also give a lot of credit to two guys who've been much maligned recently and the brewers bullpen in terms of high leverage guys not in great shape today. Josh Hader was down. I think it was clear the way the ninth inning went that. They were trying to avoid using both junior garra and Jeremy Jefferson's well. So they go to Alex Claudio, and they go to Corbin burns, a and those two guys, they're able to get the job done got a little dicey in there with a catcher's interference call. But at the end of the day, the job gets. Done, and I have to chuckle to myself, because I know it everybody knows it. Let's go to another universe for a moment. Let's pretend and I know this is not a fun place to go to. But let's pretend for a moment that Alex Claudio or Corbin burns would not have been able to hold onto this game. Let's say that ninth-inning goes in a completely different direction. You know the couple runners on gets tied up. Maybe the pirates take the lead winning in the ninth inning. I can already tell you, my phone Bank is lit up with people telling me how much of an idiot Craig counsel is forever. You those guys in the ninth inning. I know I get those phone calls. I know I'd get those text messages. I know I'd get those tweets because I get them all the time. I don't have four one four seven nine nine one six twenty four one four seven nine nine one six twenty I don't have a single phone call right now there is nobody on the line. Ready to tell me how? Mark Craig counsel is because of using Claudio in Barra burns in the ninth inning. And how well that they like and here's the point of trying to make at the end of the day it's up to the players to get the job done. The manager needs to put players in position to succeed. But then it's up to the players to get the job done and today to their credit to Claudio credit to Burns's credit. They get the job done and the brewers come away with the win four to the final score will be joined by Jerry Augustine coming up in just a while post game comments of manager Craig counsel, a lot to get to between now and five o'clock. This is brewers extra innings on WTMJ. How do we keep our prices so low that's easy? We've removed the middlemen. Yup. Most landscape suppliers, have a couple of them in there. And that's okay. But each one of those men.
